16 Months

Tristin turned 16 Months Old on Tuesday so I figured it was time for me to make notes of what he was up to! He is such a little busy body, trying hard to keep up with his big brother! He is the light of our lives (well, one of two!) and we just can't remember our lives without him!

Things he is up to:

*Walking. Everywhere! He was not in any hurry to walk, crawling was always his preferred method of travel. However, he decided that on July 1st (my birthday), that was the day to start. I thought it was a great birthday present!!

*Talking. I am constantly amazed by everything that he can say! Some of his favorite words are: mama, dada, BASKETBALL (crazy, I know!), kitty, eat, paci, blankie, outside, dog, shoes. He can say quite a few more words but they are escaping me right now :)

*Making animal noises. He can tell you what a dog, cow, duck, horse, monkey, pig, and cat say.

*Wearing 12-18 month clothes, size 3 shoes and a size 3 diaper. He is our tiny little thing!

*Has 12 teeth. The last 4 "eye" teeth just cut through the skin but they are finally in. :) They were pretty rough!!

*I took him for his 15 month check up a few weeks ago and he weighed 21 lbs 2 oz. Dr. Froman said he is in about the 20th percentile. I can't remember his exact height right now but he was in the 75th percentile. Long and lean!

*He is a pretty good sleeper. He still gets up about twice a night for a drink but then goes right back to sleep. He typically goes down between 8:30 and 9:00 and gets up between 6:30 and 7:00.

*He LOVES to play basketball. He is actually pretty good too! He would probably play basketball the entire day, if we let him.

*Adores Tayson!! Whatever Tayson is doing, is the most exciting thing for him. Tayson gets a little frustrated by this at times but overall, they get a long very well. I just LOVE watching them together, it melts my heart!!

*Loves to take a bath! This is one of his favorite times each day. He really loves any form of water, swimming, playing with the hose, etc.
